While I was clearing some stuff out from my office today, I stumbled upon an old License Europe magazine. Aside from seeing how much the licensing industry has moved on since 2003, there was a lovely interview with the incredibly talented illustrator Dick Bruna from the Netherlands.

I recently took a much needed break to the beautiful Lake District. After working flat out on an ongoing project, the two nights spent in Bowness-on-Windermere were just what I needed to recharge the batteries. Who couldn't be inspired waking up to this view? If you've never been to the Lakes before and live close [...]
